London Zoo - The north-eastern corner of Regent`s Park is occupied by London Zoo, founded way back in 1826. Over the last decade, the zoo has sought to redefine itself as an environmentally aware venue whose prime purpose is to save species which are under threat of extinction.

The zoo boasts some striking architectural features, such as the 1930s modernist, spiral-ramped, concrete penguin pool, designed by the Tecton partnership, led by Russian émigré Berthold Lubetkin, who also made the zoo`s Round House. The Giraffe House, by contrast, was designed in Neoclassical style by Decimus Burton, who is also responsible for the mock-Tudor Clock Tower.

ZSL London Zoo is open every day of the year except Christmas Day. Summer opening from 10am and closing 5.30pm. Last admission is one hour before advertised closing time. Children under 16 are not admitted without an adult.
